  •  Students should carry, too! Arming 1st graders (0+ / 0-)

    seems to be the goal of an actually elected official in Missouri:

    Missouri Sen. Dan Brown, R-Rolla, has a different, more gun-friendly solution.

    SB 75, the "Active Shooter and Intruder Response Training for Schools Program," would require the use of a National Rifle Association training program for all first graders.

    The bill also tosses aside that pesky old First Amendment by mandating that those teaching the course make "no value judgments about firearms."

    Instead of keeping the high-powered weapons away from potential school shooters, Brown's bill would require all Missouri public school personnel to undergo eight hours of training on how to deal with shooters and intruders, with a required four-hour refresher course annually. (emphasis added)

    Can you imagine requiring first-graders to be taught firearm safety indoctrinated by the NRA? (They might actually be very good at teaching firearm safety, but their "instruction" probably comes with a heavy dose of paranoid anti-government propaganda).

    The gun nuts truly know no moderation. I used to think they were pitiful. Now I fear they're horribly dangerous to a civilized society. Arming first graders? You've got to be f'ing kidding me.

    I'm a Democrat - I believe that government has a positive role to play in the lives of ordinary people.
